  • The Hand Crafted range of wines from Geoff Hardy are a true reflection of Geoff's passion for viticulture and innovative winemaking. Focused on emerging varieties, the Hand Crafted wines are a great way to explore some lesser known wines at great value! 

    Originally an Italian variety, Montepulciano is famed for its easy-drinking, plummy fruit characters. Often with a dried herb, savoury tone to it, it's a great wine to match with mid-week Italian pizza or pasta. 


    Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.


    Herbal and savoury with a maraschino cherry character on the nose. The palate is fleshy and generous, with a dried herb character and feathery tannins.


    'Hand-picked, wild-fermented, matured for 12 months in used French and American oak. Full crimson-purple; spices are at play in both the bouquet and palate, embroidering the red and black cherry fruit and its ample tannins. Good length and balance.'
    90 Points - James Halliday (2016 vintage)
